TINY

There are minis and there are tinies. Vega is a tiny. It measures 3.5” x 2” and is mounted in a 5” x 7” acid free white mat, ready to put into an easily available standard sized frame. Oddly enough, paintings in this size command attention because they are so small and intimate. I have several hanging in my home and often notice guests surprised by their size, getting close for a better look.

Vega is a mixed media collage made of archival materials, mostly acrylic paint and collage elements that I make in my studio. It is signed and dated. Little paintings like this are delightful hung on narrow walls, standing on tables or shelves, or hung in a group of paintings of different sizes. Click on Tinies to see more of them.

I have chosen to show the tinies as we enter the holiday season because they make lovely gifts. They could even be accompanied by a gift certificate for a frame available online from American Frame.
